Forums General Melanoma Community Home after neck dissection for melanoma

    Finem Respice
      I recently posted about my new diagnosis of stage 3 melanoma. Fortunately, Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa got me in in about 3 weeks or so.

      I just got home from my neck lymph node dissection (yesterday)… They will be doing more biopsies of the material removed. If it does not show more cancer than was found in the original swollen lymph node, I will be pretty happy.
      Everything went well but I am exhausted!

          I am glad you did not have to wait too long and you got the neck dissection behind you.
          You will be fine. I am also stage III and my dissection was nearly 5 years ago. All good so far. Keep up the spirirt. You will do just fine. I know it is difficult, especially in the beginning, there are tons of people on this forum ,who bounced back and are enjoying life to the fullest. Take care Christian
